"I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring." - David Bowie

And following in his wise words, here is a colorful selection of shows that will pay homage to one of the brightest stars, whose legacy lives on for all the right reasons.

Ambient Orchestra Presents: David Bowie's BlackStar Maya Beiser / Evan Ziporyn
Celebrating the late David Bowie's final album Blackstar, which was released days before his passing, composer / conductor Evan Ziporyn hopes to inject elements of cello and orchestra to bring the album to new life. Held at a grand location such as the Elder Hall at RCC Fringe, this is an unmissable event for Bowie lovers around Adelaide!

Ashes to Ashes - a David Bowie Experience
After successfully debuting their performance at the Adelaide Fringe in 2017 and attracting 5 star reviews, the Bewlay Brothers will be returning to this year's Adelaide Fringe festival, where they will be performing their show as an ode to the late David Bowie across two fantastic locations - at Fedoras Restaurant (Hilton Hotel) and at the Grand Central (Angas Street). Forming their band shortly after the death of the legendary singer, the Bewlay Brothers will be paying tribute to the star in the sky by performing some of the much-loved hits, in a bid to keep his spirit alive and happy.

Rebel
When you think of David Bowie, music and singing are among the first thoughts that come to mind. But, what about a circus act based around the legend? Rebel has been aptly named to demonstrate the rebel that was the late David Bowie. By incorporating circus with rock music, audience members can expect to be treated to a theatrical show that brings the skills of live music, acrobatics, aerials, and sideshow (to name a few) - all topped with a glamorous sprinkle of glittering rock!

The Thin White Ukes: A Bowie Odyssey
Having been performing since 2014, the Thin White Ukes bring elements of acoustics and vocal harmonies to synchronize and create some of the best covers of musical tunes that were created by Bowie. Attracting rave reviews for their ability to give everyone in the room goosebumps over their hauntingly soulful performances of Bowie's songs, you can only expect to be emotionally enthralled and thoroughly moved by the music that the trio will create at their shows.
